Webelos 1 and 2 Activities

All reports indicate a great weekend at Brown County State Park for our Webelos 1 and 2 that were able to attend. Sounds like we have a couple of polar bear patches to award that weekend. According to what i have heard, we have several of our Webelos who have earned their Outdoorsman Award as well. Good Job!

Special thanks is owed to Jay Smith and Mark Wercsynski for planning and carrying out this campout. I witnessed part of their planning session and these two leaders put a lot of work and planning to make this weekend special.

I am so thankful to have the team of leaders we have this year, they are all Rockstars! I didn’t get to attend the Tiger, Bear and Wolf go see it’s this weekend so I am awaiting full reports there. I am sure they were awesome!

I did get to attend the Webelos 1 service project last night. We have a bunch of hard working Webelos 1 who did an awesome job, chest deep in leaves in some places and in the Dark to clean up leaves on the service project. It was great fun, I took some “Night Vision” camera pics that were awful but here are a couple that didn’t turn out to bad.

August: Back To Scouting

August is not only back to school, but it’s also back to scouting.  Our Summer Program has been a success and we can look forward to a great scouting year.  Before we get going full steam ahead, we still have some summer business to take care of.  We are well on our way to earning the National Summertime Pack Award and we have several boys who are closing in on earning their individual summertime awards.  Our final Summer Event is Saturday August 25 .  We had planned to have a joint event with the Boy Scouts at St. Paul UMC, but the Troop is not going to be available to participate.  Also, there are other events going on at the Church including Soccer, so a Change of Venue will be coming our way so.   The details are still being planned out, but all of our boys and our leaders should plan to attend and this is a Class A event.

Regular Den meetings begin Monday August 27th.  We will have a new format for Den meetings, so things should flow a little better and be a little less hectic.  At least that is the plan.  The Bear Den and our Tigers are still needing leaders.  If your boys are going to be Tigers this year, we need our leadership team to come together.  Several parents have indicated they are interested in leading the Tiger Den, but we have yet to get Leader applications completed.  We need this ASAP so if you can check in with Cub Master Aaron at the August event (or sooner via email) that will be much appreciated.

Also, the Webelos 1 den is looking for a Den Leader and an Assistant Den leader.  Jason isn’t going to be able to lead the Webelos Den this year, so we have to get someone to step up and fill in as Leader as well as an Assistant.  We have had a couple of potential leaders talking about helping but like the Tigers we don’t have an Application completed or concrete commitment.  We need this as soon as we can, so we can start planning our Den meetings.

Hardin Ridge Campout July 20-22 2012

Wow! What a great weekend we had.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better bunch of Cub Scouts and Families.  Thank you to everyone for making our July Camp-out a great one.  I would like to give special thanks to the leaders who camped those who came to help lead Saturday activities.  THANK YOU!!

One person I forgot to mention at our Campfire Saturday was our Boy Scout helper,  Drew Webster.  Drew wasn’t able to stay Saturday for the Campfire, so I neglected to recognize him for all of his help with activities on Saturday.  Drew helped with our hike and our fishing as well as making rounds to check on the camping families Friday Night.  When you see him next, thank him for helping us out and giving back to Pack 121.

Karst Farm Park

What a great time we had at Karst Farm Park this past weekend!  Thank you leaders, families, and scouts for attending, helping and enjoying the activities.

Saturday was the first of 3 summer time events the Pack will be conducting.  By planning and delivering the 3 events the Pack can qualify for the National Summertime Pack Award and for scouts attending all three events they will qualify for the individual award.  Also, for each den who  has at least 50% attendance at all three events there is also a Den award.

We had a great turn out for June, July is our Camping weekend, and in August we are planning on having a joint Open House activity with the BSA Troop from the Church. Details on the July and August Events will be coming soon! The weather looks to be hot and dry for a while, so plan accordingly on all outdoor activities.

If you would like to receive our Pack Newsletter and are not currently receiving it (usually goes out second week of the month, following the Committee Meeting), you can sign up on this site via the Newsletter tab above.

2012 Scout-O-Rama

This past weekend, the Cub Scouts of Pack 121 joined other units from the Hoosier Trails Council in the 2012 Scout-O-Rama, held at the Monroe County Fairgrounds.  Our boys demonstrated the Rain Gutter Regatta to guests and other Scouter’s, and also handed out Blue ribbons to anyone who participated in the races.  The boys also got to participate in other activities hosted by other Cub Scout Packs and Boy Scout Troops.  Despite the tornado watch and severe thunderstorm warnings, everyone had a safe and fun weekend!

Following the Scout-O-Rama activities on Saturday, our Pack conducted our Graduation Ceremony.  Our Tigers are now Wolves, our Wolves are now Bears, our Bears joined the Webelos 1 ranks, and our Webelos 1 scouts became Webelos 2 as they begin work towards their Arrow of Light and transition to the Boy Scouts.  Congratulations to everyone involved.  The boys did a wonderful job this past year!  Our Summer Program is shaping up well too.

May is a holiday for the Pack as they relax from a busy spring, but the Committee has already begun planning June-August activities and our Newsletter this month should be out soon with details of what the Pack will be up to over the summer.

Thanks to all of our leaders and parents for their support and guidance this past year!  Without you the Pack couldn’t move forward.  THANK YOU!!
